OCTAGONAL PERFECTION. This sixth plate ambrotype really is quite nice. The lovely young woman sits in an elegant chair, her arms looped in her lace shawl. She had spent much time getting ready for her portrait, getting every ringlet well curled. She wore her favorite cameo brooch. The image has had its glass cleaned and is resealed with archival tape. The plastic case she comes in is whole, but has had some repairs.
